It's an amazing lineup!

So mark your calendar (August 2-5, 2013) for an unforgettable experience with the very best in the field of children's literature!  Over a jam-packed weekend you'll hear from top agents and editors on the state of the market, get inspired by award-winning authors and illustrators, discuss how to progress your career, attend small, targeted breakout workshops, connect with old friends, and meet new ones!

And on August 5th there's an even more in-depth experience available, with exciting optional intensives for writers and an incredible Illustrators Day program.

Members of SCBWI, keep an eye out for emails about the conference in the weeks to come.

This conference has sold out for the last few years, so make your plans now and be ready when registration opens in mid-April.

We hope to see you there!

Illustrate and Write On,
